Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) will soon announce a graduate course dedicated to Road Safety. The Graduate Certificate of Road Safety will provide students with knowledge, tools and frameworks to implement innovative responses to road safety challenges.

Students will learn about road safety principles and their application to road safety policy and practice, with coursework aimed at road safety practitioners or those embarking on a career in transport-related fields, from a wide range of government and non-government organisations.

The online course will be offered as four ‘intensive units’, each delivered over a six week period and will focus on evidence-based approaches to road safety, the importance of road safety management and leadership, knowledge of relevant crash and injury data sources, applying the evidence for population-level intervention, building effective partnerships, and communicating with influence to improve road safety outcomes.

The course comprises 24 credit points.  This new graduate certificate course is available to 50 registrants at a heavily subsidised fee for 2021 as part of the Federal Government’s COVID-19 Higher Education Relief Package. To meet the requirements for this funding, students must commence and complete in 2021. Students must have an Australian bachelor degree or equivalent experience.

 

The course will be launched within the coming week, and for more information on the Graduate Certificate for Road Safety, please contact:
